I need to take some other pics of her, but here she is. The cars been de-badged and rocker panels painted to match. I also had Z-06 side vents molded to the body. It has sequential tail lights like the old skool Cougars and Thunderbirds. I want to put 5 spoke deep dish 18's on it in the near future. happy ...and lower it an inch or two if I could ever figure that part out...

Looks tight. I like the gloss of the fresh paint. Could I have a closer look at the ZO6 vents?

That's as close as I can crop it before it really distorts. Once all the snow and crap is gone around here, I'll take a better pic for you.
The body shop did a nice job of making it look like it's part of the car. I think the lines coming down from the rear side window flow with the curve of the side vent...just my opinion though.

I like the subtle aggressive tones you've put on it. It's aggressive, but still classy.

Would be cool if the vents were functional, or are they?

Black is the original color, and she's black on black. I don't have any interior pics yet. The vents are cosmetic for now. I wasn't sure if they would even fit the contour of the car when I ordered them. It was just a vision in my head. I need to see what's behind the quarter panel to see if the functional ones will work. They do sell both cosmetic and funtional.

No special name brand. I found them at the muffler shop. They remind me of the factory tips on the 96 Eldorado I used to have...doesn't sound very exciting, does it. Maybe I should have made something up like Borla or something. hehe

Normally I am not a big fan about changing the body work on the Riviera, but I think it looks really cool! Would love to see some more close up pictures. It looks great.

Is there any way to take a video and post it to show us how the sequential lights look while working? Thanks.

What computer OS are you using? Can you make a QuickTime movie and then upload it to http://photobucket.com/

Do you have a digital camera that can shoot small snippets of video?

Here are a couple more pics of the side vents. The car is still a little dirty. The streets are still wet in places from melting snow. I'll upload video of the tail lights later in the week.

A little dirty?!? If mine looked that good dirty I'd never wash or polish it!
That is one slick paint job Jack! And the vent looks good too.

Thanks. I like the lights. It was fairly easy to install and haven't had any problems with them. It just gives it a different look.

i must say you've done a wonderful job on everything. I saw the sequential taillights like that on an 05 mustang and i wanted them since. How is it done?

You'll have to enlarge the center hole and change the light socket and bulb (middle only). One inch hole saw cut's it perfectly. Then there is a small box that mounts in the back and is wired to the six tail light bulbs. You also have to change the turn signal relay to a heavy duty one. That's it, very non intrusive.
